Diclofenac residues as the cause of vulture population decline in Pakistan
Results are provided that directly correlate residues of the anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac with renal failure and renal failure in the Oriental white-backed vulture (OWBV) and it is proposed that residues of veterinary diclotenac are responsible for the OWBV decline.
Antimicrobial activities of Eugenol and Cinnamaldehyde against the human gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori
Results indicate that the two bioactive compounds tested may prevent H. pylori growth in vitro, without acquiring any resistance, as indicated by the results of the present study.
The cag Pathogenicity Island of Helicobacter pylori Is Disrupted in the Majority of Patient Isolates from Different Human Populations
The integrity of the cag pathogenicity island is determined by using specific flanking and internally anchored PCR primers to know the biogeographical distribution of strains carrying fully integral cag-PAI with proinflammatory behavior in vivo to contribute to the understanding of the pathogen-host interaction in health and disease.

Investigation of breeding success and pattern of mortality in two vulture colonies within Punjab Province, Pakistan between December 2000 and June 2001 implies that the mortality factor responsible for the decline in Gyps vultures described in India is also present in Pakistan and will potentially lead to a population decline of a comparable magnitude.

Rapid population declines and mortality clusters in three Oriental white-backed vulture Gyps bengalensis colonies in Pakistan due to diclofenac poisoning
With populations declining by approximately 50% annually, the long term survival of Gyps vultures in South Asia will require the removal of diclofenac from vulture food and establishment of captive populations for future restoration once the environment is free from contamination.
Genomes of Helicobacter pylori from native Peruvians suggest admixture of ancestral and modern lineages and reveal a western type cag-pathogenicity island
The observations suggest presence of ancestral H. pylori (hsp-Amerind) in Peruvian Amerindians which possibly managed to survive and compete against the Spanish strains that arrived to the New World about 500 years ago.

The race to prevent the extinction of South Asian vultures
It may be some years before diclofenac is removed from the vultures' food supply, and captive populations of three vulture species have been established to provide sources of birds for future reintroduction programmes.
